Great to see lots of early spring activity in a couple of my commercial beehives. There is lots of pollen coming in from crocus and tree catkins with plenty of bees foraging.The bees are queuing up to get in. Looks like the bees have wintered well and are off to a good start. It is a bit early in the year for a full inspection but things are looking good. All my hives are doing well lets hope it continues.
